Using water on glued parts may cause them to become detached. Do not use the unit on wood floors or parquet that are not well-sealed.
Be careful when cleaning doors, parquet, painted surfaces or surfaces coated with synthetic products, and aluminum panels.
Before using the brush, we advise performing a test on a portion of the surface that is not in view, to prevent damage or alterations during cleaning.

Verify in the photovoltaic system’s operating manual the type of brushes that can be used for cleaning it, so as not to cause abrasions on the panels’ film.

It is important to avoid all operating situations that could cause repeated and unexpected stops of the brush’s rotation, such as those specified below:
- In the case of surfaces comprised of panels, the maximum distance between them must be 3 cm to prevent the unit from dropping into the empty space between one panel and the next.
- The surfaces must be as free as possible of protruding parts such as long screws, brackets, and terminals, which could obstruct brush rotation or rharm the bristles.
- This is a low water pressure brush, water can be from the tap, or one of many water pumps and water boost pumpes. Generally less tan 100PSI 

- When not in operation, never allow the unit’s weight to rest on the rollers’ bristles so as not to bend them when resting.

Regulator and Gauge

Use a Pressure Gauge to undestand the pressure at the brush

Install the Gauge on the water connector on the brush

Test Run your your pressure washer and supply water to the brush from your running pressure washer the PSI should be between 290 psi and 725 psi.

One you have your system setup at the correct pressure ytou can remove and store the gauge for future testing

Alway test again after a pressure washer has been worked on or should a different pressre washer is put in place to power the brush


If your pressure Washer is running the brush at more that 725PSI then immediatly stop the water flow.

You can try a smaller pressure washer or install and adjust a  Pressure Regulator to set the pressure to the suggested 600 to 650 psi to run the brush. (Max 725psi)

How to check your Flow from your Pressure Washer

Place the brush over a 5 Gallon bucket and time how long it takes to Fill the 5 Gallon Bucket it should be filled in between
  • 1min 50 seconds (2.7 gpm) and
  • 2 min 20 seconds (2.14 gpm) 
this is measured at a max of 725psi at the brush, anything longer than 2 minutes 30 seconds is not enough flow.
